In the words of Mrs. Preslar, she loved the Lord, her family, and her friends. Being the youngest of nine children, she was looking forward to seeing her loved ones who had already passed. She loved reading her Bible and watching sermons from her home church, Mt. Pisgah Baptist, on Facebook live. Mrs. Preslar was talented with arts and crafts, specifically crocheting, and often made blankets and scarves as gifts for others. She always had a way of making people laugh and laughed a lot herself. She loved hearing the latest about her grandchildren and great grand grandchildren, connecting with them and others, Facebook, having her family together, bird watching and tending her flowers.
